Y'all know I love white space, but lately there's been a bit too much white space outside my windows in the form of snow. Snow. Snow. Snow.
We're getting more snow today, which is the day after I wasted a bunch of white card stock making what my friend Leslie calls "pretty trash." Ugh. Pretty white trash in my white waste basket, pretty white cold stuff falling out my window, piling up on more white stuff that's been there a while. White is everywhere. The good, the bad, the trash.
I have no idea where I'm going with this lament (no doubt it's the result of an annoying cold virus that's taken residence in my head), but the following birthday card makes me embrace the white.
I decided to try something a bit funky with the dotted line in Lily Bee's Memorandum set, and this is what happened. GLITTER!
This would, by the way, qualify for the One-Layer Simplicity Challenge this month...except for the punched shape, which, technically, makes this a two-layer card.
Thanks so much to all who commented on this post about their favorite white card stock. Isn't it just the most wonderful thing that we have so many good options for card stock? Next up, I'm going to talk some more about inks and ink storage and such. Put on your thinking cats (*giggle*) and be prepared to share your ideas on that pesky subject soon.
When it comes to ink, I think we all need as much advice as we can get.
